Eden Hazard has been one of the most unfortunate footballers in Europe ever since his big-money move to Santiago Bernabeu.

Once revered as one of the best footballers in Europe, Hazard has suffered from a myriad of injuries at Real Madrid. Those have directly contributed to his lack of performance that has eventually seen him move behind in the pecking order.

Although Hazard’s injury woes looked to have settled down a bit this season – the player himself had suggested that he is back to ‘normal’ at the end of last month – it appears the forward has picked up yet another injury.

This has been reported by Jose Luis Sanchez, who believes the Belgian international is currently suffering from muscle discomfort. It could potentially rule him out for the upcoming Champions League game against Celtic.

Hazard’s absence in this midweek clash could serve as a major blow for the attacker, who has fallen behind the likes of Rodrygo, Vinicius and even Marco Asensio in the pecking order.

With the FIFA World Cup just around the corner, Hazard himself could have wanted every starting opportunity he gets, in an attempt to prove his quality. But it appears he could spend the Celtic game out on the sidelines.

His absence against the Scottish opponent could see Carlo Ancelotti provide another starting opportunity for Asensio. The Spaniard is one of few Real Madrid players in contention to become a part of the Spain squad for the World Cup and it could be crucial for him to gain some minutes.

Interestingly, though, Asensio has become a subject of interest for Barcelona, who are reportedly considering a Bosman move for the Real Madrid attacker in 2023.

Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.

Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.

Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.

Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.

The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.

No loan deal for Guler

However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.

Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.

Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.

They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
